Elevadores Goian, a manufacturer of lift equipment for the wind turbine
industry, will locate its first North American facility in Ankeny,
Iowa, according to Ankeny city officials. The company plans to
refurbish an existing 16,000-square-foot building for use as an office,
service, and manufacturing facility, and will hire 12 employees
initially. "Goian is confident that our decision to place our first
North American facility in the Des Moines area will be an excellent
investment," says Inaki Sancho, general manager of Goian North America
LLC, the company formed for the project. "We have easy access to the
suppliers, customers, and work force that will grow our company well
into the future." The Spain-based company had considered sites in five
other states before choosing the Iowa location. No information about
financial incentives was released.
